This morning started bright and warm, but the emptiness of the beach at Rhosneigr suggested that the tourists hadn't quite believed the forecast. The view from the top of Barclodiad y Gawres - a Neolithic chambered tomb in the hillside - revealed mist-shrouded mountains of Snowdonia and the Llŷn. The peace was slightly shattered by the roar of motorbikes on the circuit near Trecastell; since the tide was out we took time to visit St Cwyfan's church on its tiny island offshore. Like the tomb, the church was closed; on this of all days, it would have been great to see inside.
As the day heated up, the tourists woke up: we passed streams of people heading for the beach at Aberffraw. Walking along the mile-long track on the Cob, we began to get a good view of Newborough Forest, which we'll walk through tomorrow.
